These gaiters are NOT “snake proof” - Although test results showed 0% fang penetration from a variety of snake species, there is no guarantee that the wearer will not be bitten. The Kayahan Snake X Gaiters should be used as a safety precaution only and in conjunction with other precautions.
We always recommend that users do their due diligence and take all reasonable precautions when they are in situations where they may come into contact with a snake. Always treat snakes with respect and when they are sighted or you come into contact with a snake, take care and back away.
In addition to wearing Our Kayahan Snake X Gaiters we do recommend you wear tough leather boots and durable pants underneath your gaiters to provide further protection.
We recommend you avoid coming into contact with snakes wherever possible. Snakes can be highly unpredictable and can cause major harm and/or death to humans. If you do see a snake it is recommended that you back away slowly, avoid aggravating and contact where possible.
If you do come into physical contact with a snake you should contact emergency medical personal immediately.
The testing process involved a professional snake handler Sean McCarthy attempting to penetrate the gaiter material/fabric. The sample material was wrapped around an inflated balloon and pricked with 25-gauge needles (this best represents a snakes fang) this test resulted in a 0% penetration. After a successful needle test, the fabric was then tested on multiple Australia snake species for both bite force and striking ability. All tests resulted in 0% penetration.
If a snake does come into contact with the gaiters it is recommended that you avoid skin contact with venom and the area. Dispose of the gaiter and do not reuse them When disposing of gaiter, it is recommended that they are wrapped up and cannot come in to contact with another human.
